Default fenders dont line up

Just swapped off 4x4 fenders someone before me put on my 95 2wd to proper 2wd fenders, now I have a gap between the passenger side and hood, whereas the hood touches the fender on the drivers side. I don't think the truck has ever been wrecked. Any possible adjustments I'm unaware of?

the hood can be moved a little left and right by loosening its hinge nuts. Your front fenders can't be moved really.

If you used aftermarket fenders instead of genuine nissan fenders it's probably the fenders causing the problem. You will probably have to enlarge the holes for the fenders to allow you to adjust them.

I'm sure the hood was lined up to the old ones. Just adjust hood to the fenders. Easier to do that then to adjust the fenders and enlarge the holes. Just slightly loosen the 4 hood bolts at the hinges. Then you can adjust it and it will stay until you can tighten it good.
